Linked genes that are located close together on the same chromosome.

  • These linked genes belong to the same linkage group.
  • These genes travel together, eventually arriving in the same gamete during meiosis and are not expected to assort independently.
  • When genes are linked, the F2 progeny do not appear in the 9:3:3:1 ratio.
  • Instead, an excess of F2 progeny have parental genotypes. Genes that are close together usually segregate as a unit and are therefore, inherited together.
  • However, genes occasionally switch from one homolog to the other via crossing over linkage.
  • Keeps particular genes together while crossing over breaks up the association of genes that are close together.

We also discuss several other topics like What was a system of government where landowners granted land in exchange for labor and military service?

Complete linkage genes that are located very close together on the same chromosome and do not exhibit crossing over or crossing over is so rare it can be ignored. Genes are rarely completely linked.

Testosterone reveals the effects of linkage. A testosterone in which one of the organisms is heterozygotes for two completely linked genes yield only two types of progeny.

  • Each type displays one of the original combinations of traits present in the P generation.
  • Gametes that contain only original combinations of alleles present in the parents are called nonrecombinant gametes or parental gametes.
  • These progeny display the original combinations of traits present in the P generation and are said to be nonrecombinant progeny or parental progeny.
  • This is such because the genes affecting the two traits are completely linked and inherited together.

We also discuss several other topics like What is the meaning of the keyhole system?

New combinations of traits could only appear if the physical connection between M and D or m and d were broken in striking contrast.If you want to learn more check out How to determine the market price?

Independent assortment produces F2 progeny in a 1:1:1:1 ratio with two types of recombinant progeny and two types of nonrecombinant progeny in equal proportions.

Gametes with new combinations of alleles are called recombinant gametes. 

  • These gametes along with nonrecombinant gametes are produced in equal proportions from independent assortment.
  • The progeny with new combinations of traits formed from recombinant gametes are termed recombinant progeny.

We also discuss several other topics like What is the meaning of avogadro's law?

Genes that exhibit crossing are incompletely linked.

  • For these genes, they lie on the same chromosome, but the loci are only NEAR each other. They are far enough apart crossing over to occur between them.
  • A single cross over produces the same  results as independent assortment. Two nonrecombinant gametes and two recombinant gametes.

  • Therefore, when crossing over takes place in every meiosis (between two loci) it is impossible to determine whether the genes are on the same chromosome and crossing over took place or if the genes are on different chromosomes and independent assortment took place.
  • However, for closely linked genes, crossing over does not take place in every meiosis because each crossover only affects two of the four chromosomes.
  • This is true if crossing over takes place every meiosis. Thus, the maximum proportion of recombinant gametes is 50%.

  • Because crossing over between two independents does not take place in all meiosis, most of the gametes will not be observed.

  • The majority of progeny will be parental and the minority recombinations. These two genes thus show evidence of incomplete linkage.

Recombinant frequency:  the percentage of recombinant progeny produced in a cross.

  • It is calculated by dividing the number of recombinants by the total number of progeny and multiplying by 100.
  •  It can also be expressed as a decimal fraction.
